What is Vein Removal?
Lasers and light-based devices provide a non-invasive, fast and effective treatment to target unwanted blue, red and purple lesions while sparing the surrounding skin. During the procedure, light energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, this heat absorption causes coagulation of the blood vessel, which is subsequently absorbed by the body and drained through your lymphatic system. This laser treatment requires no anesthesia and no downtime.
Frequently Asked Questions
The lasers work by emitting light through the skin that is absorbed by the blood in the vessels. The laser then causes the vein to break up and disappear. With laser vein therapy, there is no compression stocking or injection needed for treatment.
A few procedures may be necessary depending on the number and size of veins being treated. It will take 8-12 weeks for the body to absorb the blood vessel. Individual results may vary.
There is no downtime. It’s better to avoid excessive exercising immediately after the procedure. You can resume your work and return to your normal activities right after the treatment.
There are no major preparations required. This laser treatment is directed through the skin, so common skin pre-care concerns do not apply. A few common-sense recommendations include avoiding sun exposure, aspirin, smoking, and alcohol for a time leading up to your laser vein treatment.
Clients report this treatment as relatively pain-free according to individual pain thresholds. However, an optional topical numbing cream can be applied to reduce discomfort. The procedure is described as feeling like an elastic band snapping against the skin.
Sometimes, a single treatment isn’t enough to resolve your problems. Many different veins can experience reflux, and unless all malfunctioning veins are treated, new varicose veins may appear in the future. If you gain weight or if you become pregnant after treatment, your varicose veins may come back.
Don’t overdo it, but movement is beneficial to the healing process after a laser vein treatment. Safe exercises 2-3 days after varicose vein treatment include walking, swimming, yoga, and light weightlifting.
